Books Unbound – Frankenstein, Part 8


Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was 18 when she and her husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley, visited some literary friends and got involved in a challenge, to see who could write the most frightening story. Out of a group that included the poet Lord Byron, only Mary’s story of a scientist who goes too far has lasted as a landmark of fantastic literature. Mary Shelley was twenty when the book was published.

Frankenstein was published in 1818, as the Industrial Revolution readied for takeoff in Europe. Science held out the promise of mankind’s triumph over nature, even over death itself – and electricity was the key. In the novel, a doctor uses electricity to re-animate parts of human corpses into a whole, living being – who, although hideous, develops intelligence and self-awareness – and finally turns against its creator. Frankenstein was banned in South Africa in 1955, for containing material deemed “indecent” and “obscene.”

Firehouse Sessions – Two Man Gentleman Band


Two Man Gentleman Band joins us for our Firehouse Session series for a performance and chat with WFHB’s Jim Manion.

Originally aired on September 18, 2014.

Firehouse Sessions – Saintseneca


Saintseneca, the folk-rock quartet out of Columbus, Ohio, stopped by on a return trip through Bloomington to play a few songs off their spring 2014 release Dark Arc. Led by songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Zac Little, the band works with acoustic instrumentation, foot-stomping melody, and wistful Appalachian-tinged vocals that have recently characterized many popular hipster-folk acts, yet their songs defy “Ho! Hey!” vapidity. In conversation with host Katie Moulton, the band discusses the DIY scene in Columbus, the strangest venue they ever played, and what to expect from their live shows (hint: it involves bodily fluids).

“Happy Alone”
“Only the Young Die Good”

Voices in the Street – Philanthropy in action: Supporting Non-profits and charities


WFHB begins its Fall Fund Drive tomorrow—big thanks to everyone who supports community radio! We’re lucky to live in an area where so many people work so hard to establish and support local services that enrich our lives and give a real sense of responsibility to the community. With time and monetary budgets tight for most, we hit the streets to ask your friends and neighbors about the charitable and non-profit organizations they support.

EcoReport – Anne Sterling: Society of the United States


In today’s EcoReport feature, Anne Sterling from the Humane Society of the United States talks about the upcoming ballot referendum on wolf hunting in the state of Michigan.

Firehouse Sessions – Lindi Ortega


Canadian Lindi Ortega is a girl from the north country, but in attitude, voice, and chops, she could pass for the raven-haired progeny of Dolly Parton. Ortega released two albums in one year, Cigarettes and Truckstops and Tin Star, both of which have been hits among WFHB’s deejays. In conversation with host Katie Moulton, Ortega introduced us to her new custom guitar, Sanchez, and discussed the unlikely way she got turned on to country music, bad dates, what it takes to make it in Nashville, and much more.

Songs include:
“I Ain’t the Girl” (new song)
“Hard As This”

Originally aired live on April 3, 2014.
